REGISTER AT PAYPAL
Method 1 PayPal website
When you register to use PayPal, you have to give your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. You also have to make up a password.
Step 1 :First thing you do is to go to www.paypal.com/ng
Step 2 : Click on signup…select personal or business
Step 3 Personal will be for your personal debit card and business is for your company debit card (if you have one). I suggest you click personal if this is your first time.
Step 4 :After selecting personal, click continue…you should see “Nigeria” in the drop down area, your email address and password.
Step 5. Fill in your email address (doesn’t have to be Gmail or yahoo. It could be @yourcompanyname)
Type in your password and make sure it is one you can remember
Step 5 Go to the next page and type other details such as names, date of birth, address and phone number.
Step 6 Also when filling in your address, make sure that it matches the same address details you filled when you opened a bank account
Step7 It takes you to a page where you fill in your debit card details
Type in your card number, expiry date and the last three digits behind your debit card.
Step 8 Go to your email account and click on verify
Voila!! Your account is set up
Step 9 Test it by sending $10 to anyone or to your PayPal account abroad (if you have one)
You get debited in naira and you should get an alert from your local bank
you can remedy this feature by confirming your bank account and linking your credit cards. After you complete the steps shown here, you’re in the clear.
For your account to get verified, PayPal must be able to confirm that your bank account is really yours. If you bank online, you can usually confirm your account in a few minutes. When PayPal has the information it needs, it makes two small deposits into that account. After a week or so, call your bank or check your account online and find out the amount of these two deposits.
When you have the amounts, sign on to the PayPal website with your password, and type the amounts in the appropriate place. Voilà! Your account is registered — and, not coincidentally, you’re verified! PayPal has confirmed that you hold an active account with your bank. All banks are required to screen their account holders, and verification authenticates your identity to anyone who does business with you.
